It can be overwhelming, to say the least, when you go out trying to find good information and guidance, perhaps especially in matters of emotional health. With so many claims out there of interventions being “effective,” far less attention has gone to what does it mean to be effective.
Whereas the general public assumes “effective” means long-term positive outcomes, much of the research generated on popular interventions has not assumed that at all – instead focusing largely on the short-term: 3-6 weeks (or 3 months max). All of this gets presented in marketing campaigns as “effective” with no differentiation on the time-frame (see this more in-depth analysis from one of our council members).
All this explains why we’ve worked so hard to gather many of the resources and sources that we’ve found specifically helpful in leading someone to longer-term (lasting, deeper, sustainable) healing from a variety of mental health and behavioral struggles.
If that’s the question you’re wondering about, as you’ll soon find out, there’s so much good stuff out there. See for yourself – and enjoy!
